With a filing of Form I-485 concurrent with I-130 for a marriage based green card for someone already in the U.S., who entered legally but overstayed their visa (overstay was a few years), what would be the correct box to select on question #2 of Form I-485 ?

Sorry but even those who entered legally and overstayed become out of status Please consult an attorney as they maybe picked up for deportation.

If they have have overstayed beyond 1 year, they will be refused entry for 10 years.

Please consult and Attorney... I do not know if there are any provisions to get around these laws.

OK Thank you. Do you disagree with what is stated on this website under Marriage to U.S. Citizen? (sorry failed to mention the marriage is to a US Citizen). http://immihelp.com/greencard/familybasedimmigration/persons-in-us.html
